The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor are the newest addition to the award-winning Braden series and the Love in Bloom family, joining the Snow Sisters, the Bradens, the Remingtons, & Seaside Summers, (Voted BEST BOOK SERIES by Supportive Business Moms, UK). 
Fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love. 
Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

My Review:

Intro: If you have been following my reviews for a while (first of all, thank you), you know that I love Melissa Foster’s books. Not a single one has let me down and that is very much true for this one as well. I am waiting for Melissa Foster to write a book that I don’t love.


Heroine: Jewel-I loved her. I really really did. She was not exactly the most “likable” of heroines but I loved her nonetheless. I felt for her. She took so much responsibility onto herself with her family that I just wanted nice things for her.

Hero: Nate-He was such a sweet man. Just the type of person that Jewel needed. He was sweet, kind and supportive. He had his own issues to get over and it was lovely to see these two characters go through that journey together.

Chemistry: Jewel and Nate were amazing together. For so many reasons. Yes, they had amazing chemistry but their emotional journey was also really intriguing. They both carried so much guilt and pain and it was interesting to watch them heal each other.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I loved Healed by Love so much. It was an emotional read. And I love how Melissa Foster can tackle really heavy issues but in a “fun to read” kind of way. She also never fails in writing characters that I connect to immediately. I’m just such a big fan. Seriously, waiting for the book that Melissa Foster writes that I don’t love.
